Summer is here, and all we want to wear are… boots.
While the sandal has long been celebrated as the shoe of the summer, we could come up with a million reasons why we’d just rather be wearing boots. From cutting down on pedicure costs to never having to wear open-toe shoes on the subway again (excuse us while we cringe at the thought), the benefits are endless. Also, let’s not forget that it does, in fact, still rain in June.
With that in mind, we rounded up 15 pairs of summer-appropriate boots. Brighter colors, lighter fabrics, and breathable cutouts make each pair suitable for every day, even in 90-degree weather. (Just don’t forget breathable socks.)
